The .3 mil increase sought in this levy would cost a homeowner only an additional $.88 per month for each $100,000 property value.

Will allow us to maintain the current level of services.

Will allow the county to provide its share to the BCMH.

Assures that our community can continue its obligation to abused and neglected children.
